Rising tide of unsold Bordeaux

Rising tide of unsold Bordeaux | Grande Passione | Scoop.it
“Apart from the First Growths, availability of the 2013s is well below average,” said Liv-ex director Justin Gibbs. “That’s not because it sold through. It didn’t even get to the market as the merchants and négociants didn’t buy any. In fact it didn’t get out of the château door. Overall there’s a lot of stock in the distribution chain, and the merchants and négociants cannot afford to absorb any more. Their balance sheets won’t support it.”
Grande Passione's insight:

Another evidence that the Châteaux are in the process of breaking up the traditional distribution channels? Who are the Liv-Ex 440 members?  Why so much bad press about the primeurs campagin 2014? Do traditional merchants sense the same? Is today's market open to have direct relationships with the Châteaux?

Finding a Distributor | Grande Passione | Scoop.it
HIGHLIGHTS
 

 
Wineries that are ready for broader distribution need to step back and think about their long-term vision for the winery. How much wine can the winery produce and yet keep its high standards for quality? Distributors want to be sure that if they find a market, the winery will be able to continue to deliver.
 

Smaller wineries should be prepared to negotiate an arrangement with the distributor that will provide better margins than it
